Sundarbans wildlife gets extended sanctuary

Spread the love

The biodiversity boundary has been extended in the Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest. Experts expect the move to help boost all types of forest resources including wildlife, fisheries, and trees. The government imposes a ban on collection of all types of wild resources from areas designated as ‘sanctuaries’ in the forest. The Forest Department has demarcated these sanctuary areas by colouring the trees differently in those areas and blocking the entrance of fishermen, Bawals, and Mowals.

 

The Sundarbans is the world’s largest coastal mangrove forest, straddling the border of India and Bangladesh. The total area of the Sundarbans is 6,017 sqkm. According to a new notification issued by the government, over half the Sundarbans’ total area falling within Bangladesh is now designated as sanctuary, which will go a long way towards the protection of wildlife in the mangrove forest. The ‘sanctuary’ designated areas now add up to 317,950 hectares, over double the 139,699 hectares that was categorised as such over two decades back.
